The "BBC Guide to Comedy" was a former subsite of
bbc.co.ukwhich offered "Info on every TV comedy shown in the UK, from 1936 to today..."
Written and researched by
Mark Lewisohn, the content of the site was first available as a book "The Radio TimesGuide to Comedy" in 1998. The site offered information about the majority of comedy programmes and sitcoms produced by the main channels in the United Kingdom, many obscure, and featured in depth reviews of popular programmes. The site also featured video clips, viewable in Realplayer, and a small gallery of cast photographs or screenshots. It was replaced by a smaller, less detailed guide in 2007, which only focusses on successful BBC programmes.
